What Is A Recovery Lifestyle?

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines recovery as “a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”

Moreover, SAMHSA has pinpointed four key dimensions of a recovery lifestyle. They are; HEALTH, HOME, PURPOSE and COMMUNITY.


The good news is, even people with severe and chronic substance use disorders can, with help, overcome their illness and regain health and social function. Being in recovery is when those positive changes and values become part of a voluntarily adopted lifestyle.
